Red alert! Lucasfilm’s Pablo Hidalgo is in Vanity Fair! We knew him when, y’all. Okay, they also have John Williams talking about The Force Awakens score, but: Pablo! He gives another fab quote on the Legends situation:
…there are great stories told there, but in all honesty they were written in an era where there was no expectation that we were going to add new movies or cinematic content onto that. So they blazed new trails there without the benefit of that knowledge, and they told really cool and compelling stories, but it’s not necessarily the stories that we want to tell on-screen.
→ Someone else got a super-vague quote from Oscar Isaac about Star Wars, this time the improbably named Monkeys Fighting Robots. (Says the woman who runs a site that sounds like it probably hosts porn.)
→ Do you want a (possible) synopsis of The Force Awakens based on all the Making Star Wars rumors? Do you? Because MSW has that for you. Click or not, it’s all you.
There’s still content from Celebration dropping, as Carrie Fisher talks to James Arnold Taylor backstage about Leia, the slave outfit, reprising Leia, and poor Gary’s exhaustion. Also joining James backstage are Ian McDiarmid and Anthony Daniels.
Rebels heads into the finale with ‘Rebel Resolve,’ and Andi chats with Taylor Gray, Freddie Prinze Jr. and Vanessa Marshall about their characters, and Dave Filoni reveals the likely fate of the courier droid. And Pablo answers two questions, including Hera’s exact relation to Cham Syndulla of The Clone Wars.
Lando came to town in tonight’s Rebels, “Idiot’s Array.” Does Lando lend a certain something to the show? Are we down with the canon pronunciation of “sabacc?” And how jealous are we of Pablo’s sweet VII jacket?
Ezra goes undercover at Lothal’s Imperial Academy in tonight’s ‘Breaking Ranks.’ The video gives us a look behind the scenes, and Pablo Hidalgo answers (sort of) a question about last week’s episode. Plus a preview of next week’s Hera and Sabine-centric episode.
We didn’t actually see anyone rise, but what the hell. The fourth episode of Rebels aired tonight, and we finally got to see the Inquisitor in action, among other things. And Pablo answers a question about the Inquisitor and the Sith.
Meanwhile, Dave Filoni discusses the episode’s big spoiler over at IGN.
Tonight we saw ‘Droids in Distress,’ the second episode of Rebels and (technically) the first official episode. In this week’s Rebels’ Recon, we hear from Lucasfilm folks about making it – and Pablo Hidalgo definitively answers the stormtrooper/clone question. (There’s also a new video teasing the rest of the season.)
